There is a mixture of confusion but also excitement among our punters here at the Transfer Tavern, with Sky Sports reporting that Everton are looking to make a move for pacy Athletic Bilbao forward, Inaki Williams in January.
After Everton hit Sunderland for six on Sunday, following a first Premier League hat-trick for Arouna Kone, fans could be forgiven for feeling a little surprised that Martinez wants to add other options in attack.
However, it is clear that Martinez is looking to add more and more depth to his squad, by possibly securing the addition of Williams.
Williams, who is only 21, came through the ranks at Athletic Bilbao, and has been in impressive form for the Basque club, having scored twice in their 3-1 victory over Real Betis last week. W
ith the January window fast approaching, and more and more clubs beginning to notice the emergence of Williams, Bilbao will be looking to tie down the youngster on a long term deal.
However, such a deal may only be a mere means of insurance for Bilbao, to ensure they get a good price out of a player who they clearly feel has bags and bags of potential.
Everton fans….. What do you make of this news? Have you ever seen Williams play? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
